Hello class and Professor Hofer. My name is Doug Ernst and my content area is social studies.

Three qualities that I hope to embody as a teacher are to be patient, fair, and exciting.

Using technology in the classroom can help expand a lesson by presenting it in a variety of ways. Today's student likely has a good deal of experience using various forms of technology and might respond effectively to material presented this way. Technology can pose challenges if it simply doesn't work or if the resources present don't fit into the lesson you are preparing.

In this class I hope to learn about various online resources that can be used directly in, or at least in preparing, lessons for class as well as new ways to integrate technology into classroom activities.
